I've been reading cutesy Chelsey's blog, The Paper Mama, for a bit now, but have never entered one of her fun Photo Challenges. (That's her daughter Ruari above. Isn't she adorable?) Although I love taking and editing photos, I'm quite haphazard about it. I don't know what's right "technically," but rather go with what pleases my eye.
This week's challenge is your "favorite photo from August." While I find it impossible to choose a favorite, simply because there are so many fun moments captured, I chose this one of Addie to submit:
I posted this same photograph of her wearing her purple peace sign shirt about a week ago, but it was unedited. I chose this as my favorite for August simply because it was fun to work on, and I liked the way it came out. I think the only thing I would change would be to have her hair down...but as odd as the serious little look she wears is, I like it :) I didn't tell her to pose that way at all, lol! I asked if I could take a picture of her, so that I could show the shirt...and that is what she gave me. Crazy girl.
I guess that this picture is my favorite in what it symbolizes, if you will--the peace signs, and the light.
